Hi Eds.
I may be a little late in posting this reply, but I had the exact same problem with my RCA 52in. rear projection. The reason the menu does not give you the option to set the convergence, is because of a simple blown fuse. If your board is similar to mine, the fuse is the center brown one located next to the flyback transformer, which is located on the left side, next to the rear as you view the circuitry from the back of the television, when the rear cover is removed. The flyback transformer can be identified by two thicker red wires leading towards the front. When you replace the center small brown fuse, you will be able to access your convergence menu again. Please use common sense when attempting this repair, by unplugging the tv for a few days prior to the repair. The voltage created by these components can cause serious injury, or even death.

Best regards, and good luck!
Hope this helps. Steve.

If the convergence is out on that set you most likely do not need to make an adjustment the circuit will need to be repaired. There is a stk on the convergence amp board that needs to be replaced. A good tv shop will run you somewhere between $300-$500 to do the repair

I cant find where to go to find the convergence option.. the manuel say's its under setup but on my tv thats not an option as it states in the pic can anyone tell me how to get in to convergence threw my...

That's a common problem with that model the auto convergence option would disappear from the setup menu. But it's a very easy and inexpensive repair that you can do yourself. You can get the RCA repair kit called the ITC 222 and ITC 222 A chassis convergence option missing repair kit. The kit contains the FL 231, DL 231, CL 030 and also has repair instructions on CD. Is $25 from listed under their RCA repair kit category.

Picture looks like 3d i have ajusted screen but keeps going back to 3d and picture is bowed

Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.
This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....
•Screen looks 3D
•Colors don't line up
•One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
•Screen is bowed or warped.
•TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.

Here are some photos of convergence problems

Convergence setup menu gone

No rest on this model other than unplugging to let it return to factory default. If your a tech .. Check R19722 and R19703 for open. Both 750 K. these open make the convergence menu to be gone.
